Watch Cardi B Perform Gritty ‘Bodak Yellow’ at BET Hip Hop Awards
Cardi B has won “single of the year” award at the 2017 BET Hip-Hop Awards. She definitely deserves it.
The song spent its third week at the number 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart this week, making it the longest running number 1 by a solo female rapper in history.
She earned her spot at the show with a live performance of the song as well and as expected — she was on point with the delivery. Watch it below.
“Bodak Yellow” topped the Billboard Hot 100 late last month, making Cardi B the first solo female rapper to land at Number One since Lauryn Hill with “Doo Wop (That Thing)” in November 1998. While she has yet to announce her debut LP, the rapper declared onstage in September that she plans to issue the album this month.
Another BET Awards highlight was Eminem’s feral a cappella freestyle, “The Storm,” which skewered President Trump over topics like immigration, white supremacy, the NFL and gun control.
